Ups and Downs: Week 22

Ups and downs is a feature that looks at the individual performances of the Ottawa Senators during the past week.

Five Thoughts for Friday

Outlook is a bit bleak

Trying to Make Sense of Player Usage


Despite yesterday's win over the Winnipeg Jets, the Senators are in an uphill battle to make the playoffs, and Paul MacLean's player usage seems all out of whack.

5 Thoughts on a Friday: Money Money


CapGeek (basically the second best hockey website in the world) put out the list of the top 200 players in terms of career earnings, in history.

Sens Lose Again, Fall 4-3 to Wild

The Ottawa Senators found a new way to lose tonight. Outchanced Wild, still lost.

Ups and Downs Week 7

Ups and downs is a feature that looks at the individual performances of the Ottawa Senators during the past week.

Sens Lose an Ugly One

They say there is comfort in familiarity. The Ottawa Senators really tested that today.

Best Contract in the League?

Kyle Turris played the majority of last season as the top centre for the playoff bound Ottawa Senators, and is currently the centre and catalyst for one of the best lines in hockey. He is also signed for the next 5 years at just 3.5 million per year.

Karlsson, Lehner Lead Sens to 4-1 Win in Columbus


Ottawa Senators were able to snap their losing streak on the road against the Blue Jackets thanks to big games from Robin Lehner and Erik Karlsson.

Senators Sin, Yet Still Beat the Devils 5-2

The Senators channeled their inner Toronto Maple Leafs in this one. Pounded in the shot department, but managed to pull out two points.

New Season Brings New Expectations

The Ottawa Senators FINALLY begin their season tonight. Unlike the last couple years, expectations are back. As a young team with a new Captain, managing those expectations will be key.

The Waiting Game

While the rest of the league kicked off the season last night, the Ottawa Senators sit idle until Friday. While it is agonizing for the fans, could it be good for the team?

Sens Fall Short, Lose to Leafs

The Sens decided somebody else should have a chance to win for a change. After going 3-0 in the rookie tournament and 2-0 early in the preseason, the Sens finally fell, this time to their Ontario rivals.

Building on a Budget

In the wake of a franchise-defining day that has produced a whirlwind of emotions for Senators fans, it is time to stand up and recognize what Bryan Murray has managed to do in Ottawa.

Thoughts from Development Camp

Today I found myself with nothing to do for the first time in a long time. So I decided I would head down to the Bell Sensplex to take in the 2 hour practice that our prospects were going through today.

Big Week Ahead

Who says the season is over? If you are a Senators fan, the next week will be one that is very exciting, and possibly very important for the future of the franchise.

Thoughts on Season's End

As the season has now finished, I'm left with a few thoughts about the season it was, and what comes next.

Alfie Announcement Friday

Now that the playoffs are over and we look ahead to the offseason, the Senators find themselves in a familiar position: waiting to learn what Daniel Alfredsson's decision is concerning his future. Looks like they won't have to wait too much longer.

Can Turris Score 30?

After back to back seasons where he scored 12 goals in just under 50 games, is next year the year that Kyle Turris follows through on his vision for himself?

Stars in Charge

With the announcement that Joe Sakic, Patrick Roy and the rest of the Avalanche front office may pass on Seth Jones, it got me thinking about having former star players in the front office.

Some Recognition is Always Nice

For a team that has been in playoff contention essentially since their first berth in 1998, the Ottawa Senators have certainly lacked when it comes to individual awards in their history. Friday's awards show that this trend could be changing.

Why all the 'FA Signing' Stories?

With an influx of articles in the blogosphere about potential UFA signings, it has me wondering, are fans impatient with the rebuild, bored because of no Senators hockey or is the time now to take the next step?

Who Should Win the Conn Smythe?

Its that time of year again, when every blogger and columnist is running out of things to say about hockey so they write the "who is the Conn Smythe favourite?" post. Today I have a bone to pick with them.

Is It Ceci Time?

With the recent departure of Sergei Gonchar, there exists a sizeable hole on the back end for the Ottawa Senators. Could Cody Ceci slide into it?

Could the Senators Move their First Rounder?

Now that the Senators' season has been both completed and dissected, its time to really come to grips with the fact that it is summer time. However, the draft is in the summer, and that can be exciting!

The Future for JGP

It is important when young players play well in short stretches to not overhype them. With some, this can be very difficult. especially for a blogger in the summertime. Today, I try.

The Most Impressive Rookie Debate

It was a very wild season in the Nations Capital. The Senators dressed many rookies, and played them in significant roles, but which one were you most impressed with?

Hindsight, WIML Style

Oh, what's that? You thought we would only laugh at the staff's silly predictions!? No no no. Don't be silly! Here are the results of the Which is More Likely Series.

Looking at the Class of the NHL

WIth five teams remaining in the playoffs right now, you are certainly starting to see some familiar names. In a league that has been proud of its parity in recent years, these teams represent that next level.

Looking for Scoring


It is the season's end, and there is lots to write about. Where the season went right, how it came to an end, whether Daniel Alfredsson will be back, should we sign Gonchar? Today I look at some players who Murray may target to help the Senators.
